1988 Jaguar XJS Hess & Eisenhardt

1988 Jaguar XJS Hess & Eisenhardt

Coming soon! Rare low mileage 1988 Jaguar XJS Hess & Eisenhardt Convertible!


From 1986, a full convertible version was available through some US-dealers, modified by Hess & Eisenhardt. The Hess & Eisenhardt coachbuilding firm was located in Ohio, USA, and built convertible modifications for the XJ-S under contract from Jaguar, before the official Jaguar-built XJ-S full convertible became available in 1988.

The Hess & Eisenhardt convertible differed from the later Jaguar-built XJS convertible as its un-padded top folded down deeper into the body structure of the car resulting in a cleaner rear profile when the roof was lowered. Only 2.100 units were made!


This clean example still has it's orginal Old English White paint, with all the VIN stickers on each bodypart still available. Chrome is still in great condition. The soft top is in great condition with no rips or tears.


The interior is all original and the leather has no rips or damages. The original radio has been replaced by a newer one, which we will change out for an original again. 


Mechanically everything is in great order too. The V12 runs great and AC blows cold.
